Region 1 Meeting

hosted by the Gravette School District

ASBA holds meetings every fall at a school district within each of its 14 regions across the state.  These dinner meetings are the perfect opportunity for board members and superintendents to network with colleagues and hear timely information about district governance and upcoming events. For 2019, our agenda will include:
•    How Do We Move Our Schools Toward Continuous Improvement? A Guide for School Board Members. This session will be conducted by guest presenters from the Department of Education and include a brief overview of ESSA School Index and MySchool Info including what boards need to know about this resource and any recent changes to the system; your district’s accountability timelines; and, how to improve your school using the High Reliability Framework, what the HRS scale and its levels mean. They will leave time to answer questions you may have.
•    ASBA staff will present up-to-date information about some of the more board relevant requirements that came out of the 2019 legislative session. Among the things addressed will be: changes in board election timelines, recording requirements for board meetings, audit and school safety training requirements for board members, and what’s currently happening with the adequacy study.
WHEN: Thursday, October 10, 2019

Check-in begins at 5:30 p.m. A networking dinner will be served promptly at 6 p.m. A brief business meeting and program presentation will follow and the meeting will conclude at 8:30 p.m.

WHERE: Gravette High School, 325 Lion Drive S., Gravette, AR 72736
